Instead of the tourist trap Blue Lagoon, we ventured to the Nautholsvik via city bus. Far less commercial, smaller. Consists of beach with mixing pool, cool water tub, and then a larger hot pot. Steam bath was a treat for my husband. Takes a bit...More

The idea is certainly unique and on a sunny afternoon was packed with both locals and tourists. Hot water runs into the top pool, then down to the shallow beach pool and then into the lagoon. This means that the lagoon, while warmer than the...More

Glad we travelled out to this geothermal beach which has an area to relax in before venturing to the beach which is COOL!! Free in summer. Excellent changing facilities. Lifeguards on duty. Very relaxing.

We bumped into folks from Quebec on the bus - they were headed for the Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach and as they talked about it, our curiosity grew. We decided to follow them to see what was so special. This free facility was a marvelous surprise....More

I was taking a long stroll around Reykjavik to look for birds and came across this geothermal beach. Few people were there but it must be a swell place for locals with the geothermal hot tub, steam bath and well protected beach when the weather...More

Geothermally heated 'pool' and lagoon not even 5 minutes from downtown Reykjavik. It is free to use throughout the summer (small surcharge in winter months) and is within walking distance of downtown Reykjavik. Best part? Hardly any tourists!

I actually live like 1 km from it and walking there is such a nice thing. Then coming to that welcoming yellow sand beach is even greater. Icelandic weather might rarely match beach weather but you know, you don't even need that weather to enjoy.

I was hiking in search for birds in the area so I did not take any transport at all. Please check on Reykjavik websites and I am sure you will come up with something. Have a nice trip!
